The white version of the Apple iPhone 4 has been missing in action since pre-orders started to be accepted on June 15th. While no one knew the reason why, Apple has announced today that the white version is simply harder to manufacture and should be ready during the second half of July. Did anyone out there hold out on ordering the iPhone 4, waiting for the availability of the ivory model? Did anyone order the black model even though they really wanted white? With Apple saying that the manufacturing process is harder for the latter model, we wonder if there will be a continuous shortage of this color iPhone 4. Apple's complete statement on the matter reads, "White models of Apple’s new iPhone® 4 have proven more challenging to
manufacture than expected, and as a result they will not be available
until the second half of July. The availability of the more popular
iPhone 4 black models is not affected."
